Default newbie - NOT!

Newbie - long time lurker. Been fishing the Southern Atlantic ocean this past year. Lots of marlins, very few tunas.

The newest boat in the fleet is the F/V Ozimo III - 32m x 10m w/single Cat 3516 main, two 3408 gensets. We bought the hull in Seattle and she's being outfitted in Amsterdam, as cod pot long-liner - 100m of line btwn pots and main line 600m to floats.

My long-time friend and fellow angler, who I grew up with in NW Indiana - Capt. Abe died late last month.

He will be missed by many on the various forums, but mostly by the people who loved him the most. Capt. Abe grew up on the Great Lakes, and as many of us did in early days of salmon fishing got his own boat and started chartering. It was great for a couple of decades, then the zebra mussels arrived and threatened the entire fishery. We went our separate ways - he to Canada and me to doing international fishing expeditions. We met up from time to time, sharing photos and stories.

He had just buried his step-brother Brett a week before when he collapsed at the helm, doing what he loved.

R.I.P.

Yes, he was loved by many and hated by few. I bought his old boat F/V Alice's Dream - a 58 ft steel Great Lakes seiner which I am converting to a live aboard.
